Hawkhurst

Hawkhurst is a village and civil parish in the borough of Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent, England. The parish lies to the south-east of Royal Tunbridge Wells. Hawkhurst itself is virtually two villages. One, the older of the two, consisting mainly of cottages clustered around a large triangular green known as The Moor, and the other, farther north on the main road, called Highgate (which was considered to be updated to town status because of its increasing population and the council's plans to build more houses). Highgate stands on a crossroads and is where the shops and hotels lie.Since boundary changes in the 2010 general election, Hawkhurst is part of the parliamentary constituency of Tunbridge Wells, represented by Conservative Greg Clark. Prior to this it was in the Maidstone and The Weald constituency, formerly represented by Ann Widdecombe.TransportRoadsHawkhurst lies at the intersection of the A229 and A268 . The village lies on the route of a Roman road which crossed the Weald here.RailwayA railway station was built in Hawkhurst in 1892, to the west side of the Cranbrook Road, on the northern edge of the village. It was rarely busy except during hop picking time, when up to 26 special trains per day, each carrying up to 350 Cockneys from London, would arrive at Hawkhurst – up to 10,000 people per day. As this declined, the station became uneconomic, and it was closed in 1961.
